Interesting enough, according to Wikipedia (grain of salt time), the first recorded reference to kangaroo courts was in Texas, go figure. Here is Eric Holder responding to Charles Grassley.
I’m not going to copy and paste this article from Glenn Greenwald at Salon.com but encourage you all to take a look at it. Wolf Blitzer really crossed several lines the other day with the Liz Cheney smear ad, he was complicate in it and deserves to be reprimanded, take away his Edward R. Murrow award or something. He’s obviously an idiot, sees everything as “he said, she said”. He’s a moron. Check out this article.
